A major aerospace industry OEM has selected BriskHeat Corp., Columbus, Ohio, to supply an out-of-autoclave heating system capable of providing precise temperature control. The heating system will be used for composite curing on large surface areas greater than ~53 ft2 (5 m2). It will be used to manufacture the OEM’s next generation composite structure under development.
BriskHeat’s heating system includes an ACR 3, the company’s hot bonder product, as well as specialized heating blankets fitted for the application and all of the accessories necessary to precisely heat a very large area. According to Briskheat, the system is flexible enough to integrate into the OEM’s full production using the same configuration of heaters and temperature controls.
